The wait is almost over for the "Game of Thrones" season 4 premiere, "Two Swords." The "GoT' premiere airs on Sunday and it has been awhile since the season 3 finale, so here's where the characters left off following "Mhysa."
Bran Stark has been traveling with Hodor, Jojen Reed and Meera Reed throughout the third season. In "Mhysa," the group arrives at the Nightfort and Bran is startled by a noise that turns out to be Sam, Gilly and her infant son. Sam tells Bran a way beyond the Wall and makes a promise to not tell Jon that he met his brother. Bran and the group are continuing their search for the three-eyed crow.
Jon Snow fled the Wildlings in "The Rains of Castamere," but Ygritte has been following him. After stopping, Jon hears Ygritte ready to unleash an arrow. She fires three arrows but Jon escapes and arrives at Castle Black, wounded but safe. Theon's torture at the hands of Ramsay Snow continues, culminating in the removal of a valubale piece of Theon's anatomy. The severed piece of Theon, now known as Reek, gets sent to his father, Balon Greyjoy, with a demand to leave the North. Theon's sister, Yara, sets sail to free him from the Dreadfort.

Davos finally gains his freedom after being locked up as a traitor. The Onion Knight frees Gendry after learning that he was going to be sacrificed by Melisandre to the Lord of Light. Davos admits he defied Stannis and Melisandre but, thanks to his reading lessons, shows the letter sent from Castle Black detailing the return of the White Walkers. Melisandre gets a vision of a battle in the North and Stannis sets off to help the Night's Watch.
The majority of "Mhysa" deals with the fallout of the Red Wedding. Tyrion, married to Sansa, realizes the significance of the deaths of Robb and Catelyn Stark. Joffrey continues to act like a spoiled queen while Cersei opens up a bit to Tyrion, discussing her feelings and how becoming a mother changed her. Jaime, missing a hand, has returned to King's Landing with Brienne of Tarth in "Mhysa." Jaime heads to Cersei's room but she is put off by his missing sword hand.
Arya and Sandor Clegane, the Hound, arrive at the aftermath of the Red Wedding, witnessing Robb's body being paraded around by Walder Frey's men, and flee but not before killing a few soldiers. Walder Frey and Roose Bolton, who betrayed the Starks, discuss the fallout from killing Robb and Cat while also revealing what the reward they received from the Lannisters, as Frey is now the Lord of Riverrun while Roose is the Warden of the North.

Daenerys freed the slaver city of Yunkai in the "Rains of Castamere," with the help of Jorah, Daario and Grey Worm, and gives a speech to the newly-freed slaves in the "Game of Thrones" season 3 finale. In response, the freed slaves yell out "Mhysa," which means "mother" in Ghiscari.
For an in-depth "GoT" season 3 recap, HBO released a 25-minute video as well as an interactive viewer's guide. The "Game of Thrones" season 4 premiere, "Two Swords," airs on Sunday at 9 p.m. EDT on HBO.
